My Photos/Videos - My Fish Tanks, UK (2010)

I started keeping tropical fish around a year ago, starting off with a 65 litre tank, but because I kept adding more and more fish and other things the tank started to get over stocked. So, I recently upgraded to a 240 litre tank with also a small 20 litre tank to raise fry in and to put injured and ill fish in.

Currently showing photos/videos 1 to 41 of 41
